Soil Science Database

Soil Science Database

"The Soil Science Database contains over 30 years of international research, providing an ideal source of information on soils"

The Soil Science Database represents the most targeted and in-depth source available for information on soils, water, fertilizer and land management.

 

Compiled by subject specialists at CABI Publishing, the Soil Science Database contains more than 1,000,000 abstracts and citations, with 55,000 records added annually. It provides a fully searchable backfile to 1973 of research from over 75 countries and provides an ideal source for professionals and students requiring an international perspective on the wealth of information available on soils.
